Description
Scope/Content: Michael May was a physicist working on weapons research (he would later be director of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory). Here he responds to the published version of Hugh Everett's thesis, with a proposed friendly addition. John Wheeler does not seem to understand what May has in mind, but passes the letter on to Everett anyway. Wheeler also invites Everett to give a seminar at Princeton on his thesis, several years after his graduation.
Scope/Content: This document is a reproduction of a document found at the Hugh Everett archive, American Institute of Physics.
